(Smile while reading. It makes it so much better)
Ok....now, my profile has something a lot of women on here seem to be a little upset about. The shirtless guy with pics of his body or his car or his house or his boat or his dog or....(you get the idea!)
But since I see every other female profile (which, by the way we like and approve of) in a bathing suit, with gorgeous cleavage, a revealing dress or you with a celebrity....I say fair's fair. Besides I busted my ass to get where I am and to keep my body fit and I'm not hiding it. What do you think about that!!! Haha...
And, no, I don't want to have sex with you and move on...I want someone who completely makes my world go 'round. So let's not pull the casual sex/player card on me because I'm missing one article of clothing. I'm not an object. I'm a human being. I have feelings under these abs!
I have outdoor adventures, I play sports and I do the things real men do (fix my own car, hold your door, fight a douchebag, grill a steak, do my own yard, and work up a genuine sweat doing all those things.)
I run a company. It doesn't run me. I work hard then I play equally hard. I'm at the lake or on the trails every chance I get. And I live every minute for the memories. Nobody is guaranteed a minute longer than right now. And right now, I'm having a great time.
(UPDATE: Ok! We're going to have a quiet moment here for a second. It's a tough one but it sort of informs you why I am where I am. Then we'll get right back to the good stuff, I promise.)
I recently moved back to East Texas, leaving Austin behind and my company in good hands, so I could be close to what's important.
You see, we lost my mom recently and my father, after fifty years of marriage, has no idea what to do. He's just in this empty place without her. As their only child, I knew I couldn't live five hours away any longer. I vowed not to miss another moment with him if I could help it. Besides, my roots are here, my family....my hometown. This is where I needed to be. And it really does feel like an old country song. When I was younger, I couldn't wait to get out of here. Now, I have to say....it's good to be back.
Alright, back to the profile....)
I'm great at listening and understanding. But remember this....I'm a man. I won't be your girlfriend. I won't kiss your ass and my balls stay right where they are. But I will be your rock, I will have your back, I will hold you tight, I will fix it, I will make it better.
I'm dating online because I won't ever be "that" guy at the bar you don't talk to because it's too loud and I've caught you off-guard in the one place where every idiot there has hit on you until you're exhausted. Not my style.
I just turned 40. I don't act forty. I don't look forty. I run. I play. I kayak. I ski. I board. I rollerskate. I dig a volleyball. I throw a mean curveball and a fierce dodgeball! I dance til two (and I mean dance, not hang on the wall trying to be cool.) I think I get this trait from my folks. They never acted their age and it kept them young! And I do get the difference between being young and trying to be young. Let's just say...other guys have mid-life crises. I'm having a mid-life blast!
What am I looking for? No drama. No baggage. No jealousy. No insecurity. (I'm highly allergic to those four things.....well, those and down pillows.) And I want a woman who can keep up with me.
IMPORTANT: I'm looking for someone who is fit. (Ok. Apparently, I need to define this. I love your curves. It makes you sexy and feminine. What I mean is that you take good care of yourself. That those curves of yours are intentional.) I love to keep my body at its best and I want someone who feels the same. I'm not going to apologize for this one. It's what I'm attracted to and it's what I want. Hold on though. That's not the most important thing! I want a sensitive and outgoing woman with a great sense of humor and a strong sense of self-worth. A woman who loves herself first will always be able to love someone else the way they deserve to be.
It's simple really. I want a mind-blowing chemical reaction to the physical and mental elements of you.
Depends entirely on the intangible spark. If the attraction is immediate and apparent, then the first date just got real interesting. Then spontaneous notions kick in and we find ourselves creating amazing and unforgettable experiences. Will include but not limited to: A great time, a memorable moment, an unexpected twist, getting lost on purpose, a vintage store, live music, a lake, a carnival ride, a river.
Now I have seen women's profiles that contain a laundry list of DO NOT MESSAGE ME IF's that's meant for all us boys to follow...well, here's mine and it's easy.
DON'T MESSAGE ME IF: you're petty, angry, jaded, emotionally constipated or can't laugh at me or yourself.
But Mama always said leave 'em with a positive...
SO PLEASE "DO" MESSAGE ME IF: You are happy, well-adjusted, love to be fit and healthy, and you get it. And by “get it”, I mean that you get how fleeting this life really is and how much fun can be crammed into a day and how “spontaneous and free” beats “uptight and conformist” any day of the week and twice on Sunday. You expect and demand a life that’s big and loud and made up of movie moments and long, slow kisses. That negative, shit-talking, ****y people have to go and uplifting, hilariously positive people get to stay. And last but not least, if your sense of humor has a sense of humor, then come on! I’ve got so many things I want to show you…!
